Anti Hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS5b protein Monoclonal antibody

Background

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a small (55-65 nm in size), enveloped, positive sense single-stranded RNA virus in the family Flaviviridae and the principal cause of parenteral non-A, non-B hepatitis. The virus genome consists of a single open reading frame of approximately 9,400 bases which encodes a single polyprotein of about 3,010 amino acids (1, 2, 3). The polyprotein is processed by host cell and viral proteases into four structural proteins (core, envelope1 and 2, and p7) and six non-structural proteins (NS2, 3, 4a, 4b, 5a, and 5b) necessary for viral replication. NS5b forms the C-terminal protein of the HCV polyprotein and functions as the viral polymerase involved in RNA replication.

Application

Western blotting of HCV NS5b protein.
Fig.1  Western blotting of HCV NS5b protein.
Chimp liver cells were infected with recombinant vaccinia virus containing a HCV genome cDNA and were subjected to Western blotting using this antibody. The NS5b protein is detected as a 58-kDa band

Detection of HCV NS5b protein by immunofluorescence antibody staining.
Fig.2  Detection of HCV NS5b protein by immunofluorescence antibody staining.
Chimp liver cells were infected with recombinant vaccinia virus containing a HCV genome cDNA. After incubation for 48 hr, the cells were fixed with acetone and HCV NS5b protein was detected by indirect immunofluorescence staining using this antibody.
